Commitment to Community Scholarship

The St. Andrew’s Parent Association (SAPA) will award two $500 scholarships to members of the senior class who best represent “How community service has made a difference in his/her life.”

The scholarship winners will be announced at Awards Night in May.

A sub-committee designated by SAPA will review applications. To avoid any bias, the committee will not be comprised of any senior class parents. Applications will be numbered for applicant anonymity and the recipient will be selected based on the answers in the application.

Eligibility: Any member of the senior class is eligible to apply; however, applicants must be accepted to a college. Note: the scholarship can be deferred for up to two years.

Application process: Submit an application that includes a series of short answer questions and a 500-word essay. Attach a list of all community service projects, how you participated, and the time and duration of each project with your essay. A cover sheet with your full name must be attached to your essay. Remember, the author of each essay will remain anonymous to the review committee; therefore, your essay and questions must not contain your name.

Applications are available through the College Counseling office, on NAVIANCE, and through the Development Office beginning in April.
